Loving London

Hey guys!

So, I have been in London for a little over four weeks now, and it has truly been the adventure of a lifetime.  I am loving living in London, and I never want to leave.  I have definitely gotten a lot more comfortable navigating around the city and finding my way around.  I did get on the wrong tube for the first time ever the other day, but I realized after one stop and all I had to do was get off and hop on another one heading in the other direction. 

Like I said before, I love going on adventures.  I’ve been adventuring to any place in London I can in my free time.  This past Friday, I went to a placed called Shoreditch.  It was amazing; I got lunch by myself at this placed called “The Breakfast Club,” I met an artist and helped him promote is new EP coming out July 21st, and I explored all the graffiti Shoreditch is known for.  It was one of my favorite adventures so far.

My roommates and I still can’t believe we’re in London.  At least a few times a week we say, “Oh my gosh, we’re in London.”  We just can’t believe we have this amazing opportunity to travel to a different country to work and study.  It’s been so much fun.

My internship has been an amazing experience as well.  My coworkers are a bit older than I am, but they have been nothing but welcoming and super sweet to me.  Every morning at work, one of them offers to make me a cup of tea (which is so good btw).  They always ask me about my weekend adventures, which recently I travelled to Paris – highly recommend.  They made me feel right at home the first day I got there, even though they had no idea who I was and why I was there.  When I started, it was really hard to understand the accents of the ladies.  I had to keep asking them to repeat themselves because I genuinely had no idea what they were saying.  It has gotten better the more I work there, but sometimes I just smile and nod my head.  I would tell others who are going to do an internship abroad, always be open-minded and help out with as much as you can, even if it is not in your speciality.  Always be open to learning about different things!

Anyways, I will talk to y’all in a bit! Hail to Pitt!
